The tide pools near Pismo California are fun to explore. We rented kayaks and paddled out into the surf. The kelp was thick near the rocks but the view was amazing. The seals came close to check us out. The paddling was easy with the ride on kayaks. The tour guide knew where to go to stay out of trouble. The water was cold as is the norm for Pismo. I wore a wet suit as I didn’t want to freeze to death. Dana Sibilsky is an expert kayaker and did not need the tour guide. He has been kayaking this area for years.
